AT&T is hooking bridges up to the Internet of Things.
At CES, AT&T announced that it’s testing a new “structure monitoring solution,” a system of sensors to help cities, states, and private transportation companies monitor the stability of bridges, and alert officials if they become unsafe.

The sensors can be applied to all bridges, from foot bridges to those that support roads and railways.
AT&T will announce customers over the next several months. Some cities and companies will buy and manage the systems, while others will buy them but let AT&T manage them
